Gizmodo reports that the iPhone 3G will be in stores on June the 9th.

When the iPhone launched everybody was super enthusiastic about the device that is changing the mobile market (read this wired article on “How the iPhone Blew Up the Wireless Industry”).
Soon after the launch people started to notice the flaws of the iPhone. You can’t copy/paste, you couldn’t search through your contacts, keyboard misses feedback and it has a great browser but only supports the, way too slow, EDGE and GPRS protocols.

Now Apple announced that the long awaited 3G iPhone is coming to stores and will be available worldwide. This will open up a whole lot of new opportunities for apps on the iPhone.

I’m glad I’ll be going to the US after the release. Want me to bring one?
